The impact of the invasive ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi on the zooplankton commu- nity of the Caspian Sea was quantified according to food consumption and other major physiological activities (i.e. respiration and reproduction), coupled with field data on population structure. The adverse effects of M. leidyi on the zooplankton community during the first years of the invasion were tremendous for the Caspian Sea compared to other regions affected by this ctenophore. The impact was highest in… Expand
